Patrick Cornelius presents his octet music played by senior Royal Birmingham Conservatoire jazz musicians.
Cornelius’s most recent album While We’re Still Young, which he’ll be showcasing tonight, features original music for jazz octet inspired by the timeless poetry of A.A. Milne. Originally commissioned by Chamber Music America and featured on NPR’s “JazzSet with Dee Dee Bridgewater.”
“[his] original works show a dusky elegance that owes much to Wayne Shorter while retaining a unique identity.” JazzTimes
“A self-assured young saxophonist in the postmodern mainstream.” The New York Times
